Couchon du Lait (Dr. Vraha’s Party)

Mark Vrahas, chief of BWH/MGH Orthopaedic Trauma, accepts the 2002 "Golden Apple" award for contributions to resident eduction. A Cajun feast, featuring “the beast,” marks this blowout on the Newton back lawn of Dr Vrahas, chief of the Orthopaedic Trauma unit at the MGH. This party is so legendary that it has been known to attract guests from as far away as New Orleans! Rod the Long Bone, the ortho department’s rock/blues band, plays at full volume, and although the Newton Police have never been officially involved, there have been threats. Come early to ensure that you can eat until you are about to burst.
